 Welcome To Buck Country!

Welcome to the internet home of the Buckeye High School Varsity Football team of Medina, Ohio, who completed their 65th Season of play in 2017. They had another great campaign going 10-0 in the regular season for only the 3rd time in Bucks Football History. They made their 5th straight appearance in the OHSAA Playoffs, but again bowed out in the first round losing to the 27-14 to the visiting Tallmadge Blue Devils. As of the end of 2017 they have scored 3,154 points against the PAC12 opponents, while giving up 1,252 in 91 Games owning a 74-17-0 conference record.

This will be the final season of play for the Bucks in the Patriot Athletic Conference. The PAC12 is being disolved at the end of the 2018-19 school year. The Bucks, along with PAC member Fairview will move to the Great Lakes Conference which was formed in 2015. That conference now contains 7 teams and will expand to 9. The other members are Bay, Elyria Catholic, Holy Name, Normandy, Parma, Rocky River and Valley Forge.

The 2017 season was the 1st season under Head Coach Greg Dennison who came to the Bucks in the off season when former Head Coach Mark Pinzone took the Head Coach job at Brunswick. The Bucks also claimed their 5th straight PAC12 Stars Division Crown, wh7ich is their 9th overall. It was also the 5th straight year of qualifying for the OHSAA Football Playoff. The Bucks have now qualified for the State Playoffs in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Former Head Coach Pinzone had a 33-10 record in his 4 years at the helm and left the team in great shape for Coach Dennison.

Coach Dennison is the 16th Head Coach in Bucks History. He was an assistant coach during 2016 for the Brunswick Blue Devils. Prior to that he led the Wadsworth Grizzles for 21 Seasons from 1995-2015. His accomplishents there have him in the company of some of the greatest coaches in Medina County history. He compiled a 148-77-0 recored and led the Grizzles to Suburban League Titles in 1996, 2007 and 2009 along with three regional final appearances in 1999, 2003 and 2011. His 10-1 record last season gives him a 158-78 record which is good for 2nd All Time in Medina County behind Black River's Al Young.

Go Bucks! Buckeye Pride!!

Ohio High School Football Information Rankings

The Ohio High School Athletic Association oversees all sports for high school athletes. They also do the rankings for the football teams which determine which 8 teams make the playoffs at the conclusion of the season. They have alot of good information there for parents and student athletes. Here is the link to the OHSAA site. Another good site for high school football scores and rankings is Joe Eitel's site for Ohio HS scores. Joe ranks all the teams in their respective divisions and though "unofficial" for years he is now the "official" source of the OSHAA for their rankings. Last but not least if you are still not getting enough high school football information to feed your habit try Dan Pasteur's Ohio Fantastic 50MaxPreps or JJ Huddle.
